We help empower parents by facilitating community workshops, legal support, psychological support and many other services.
To help achieve our goals in education, we believe it is important to help create a positive family and community environment. This is one of the key aims of our social work program, led by our certified social worker, Marina Lobato.
Following an assessment of the social support needs in the community, we developed a social intervention plan aiming to foster critical thinking and a sense of community, as well as preventing social disorder and crime. We work closely with individuals and families through personal visits, and the community as a whole through workshops. We also use other approaches, such as group fitness classes and encouraging people to better use themselves as a resource.

Marina also works closely with other professionals such as psychologists and lawyers, as well as institutions such as schools and municipalities to help improve the empowerment of community members.
